captain's log

My dad died towards the end of 2020. He’d contracted the coronavirus in March, and in the end, that combined with other ailments was too much for him. I’m sure many of you have lost loved ones too over the past 12 months, and we’ve all been impacted by the pandemic in some way, so let me just say to all of you: I hope you’re coping as best you can. Dad was always slightly baffled by what I do for a living. He had a pretty unusual career himself – he was a professional ballroom dance partner (he used to charge a “bob” – a shilling in old money – per dance; he was even featured in the photojournal Picture Post), then a ballroom dance instructor and dancehall manager, then…

55 YEARS YOUNG! Star Trek celebrates 55th anniversary With 2021 well underway, Star Trek is marking its 55th year in fine style, both looking ahead to new shows – namely the three live-action and two animated series in various stages of production – and back to past triumphs. Already in production are Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 and, respectively, the first and second seasons of animated shows Star Trek: Prodigy and Star Trek: Lower Decks, all of which are expected to debut this year. At time of writing, Season 2 of Star Trek: Picard was anticipated to begin production in January, with Season 1 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds heading into production shortly after. However, with Covid-19 continuing to impact production facilities in the US and Canada, all dates are subject to…

Star Trek: Discovery fans who loved Season 3 might be best described as being on this side of paradise – Michelle Paradise, that is. In her capacities as writer, co-executive producer, and co-showrunner – alongside Alex Kurtzman, Star Trek’s executive producer – during Season 3, Paradise certainly made her mark on the series. She arrived at Discovery midway through the second season, after working on such projects as the short film The Ten Rules and series including Exes & Ohs, Hart of Dixie, and The Originals. Also an actress, Paradise starred in Exes & Ohs. Star Trek Magazine recently caught up with Paradise for an extensive interview about her time so far on Discovery, the major events of Seasons 2 and 3, and the intricacies and challenges of show-running a modern-day…

Ian Alexander Gray, Star Trek: Discovery “I would say yes, because I have a commander’s notebook on my desk with the Star Trek symbol on it. For the Season 3 premiere, they sent this wonderful gift package to the cast. And so I have a Star Trek Cats book, which basically is just filled with illustrations of fan art. This artist did revisions of Star Trek screenshots as cats. Everyone in it is a cat. It’s just incredible. Truly amazing.” David Ajala Book, Star Trek: Discovery “I have my Discovery set chair with my name on it. I have that. It’s in my wardrobe along with several of my other set chairs. But my Discovery chair, that one’s at the top.” Ira Steven Behr Executive Producer, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Upon entering my home, if you look…

It’s worth “noting” – if you’ll excuse the pun – that Jeff Russo is in some mighty fine musical company. As the composer for Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Short Treks, and Star Trek: Picard, he joins a rarefied list of masters that includes Alexander Courage, Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Cliff Eidelman, Ron Jones, Jay Chattaway, Dennis McCarthy, Michael Giacchino, and more. In this exclusive conversation with Star Trek Magazine, Russo discusses his place in Star Trek history, touches on his Discovery work, and provides insight into creating his Picard score. Star Trek Magazine: You were born a week before the original series went off the air, so, as a composer and as a Star Trek fan, what has it meant to you to follow in the footsteps of so many…

22nd Century ACCESS PANEL (A.K.A. “MEES PANEL”) In-universe first appearance: Star Trek: Enterprise, “Terra Nova” (2151) The first chronological appearance of a “Mees panel,” where a crew member needed to inspect or repair inner circuitry on the ship via a little hatch. Actual first appearance: Star Trek: The Next Generation, “Aquiel” (2369) Not as well known as the Jefferies tube or the Okudagram (see the “LCARS” entry), the Mees panel was named after TNG set decorator Jim Mees from sixth season “Aquiel” on. Essentially the nickname applied to any service panel or junction box seen on the Enterprise-D. Writer/ producer Ron Moore was so fond of using such panels that it triggered complaints from Mees that each one cost upwards of $1,000 to design, make, and install, given that the original design didn’t have any access…
